Everyone in this thread is capable of reading your site and has
probably already done so. We know what your rules are for
binary-trees; repeating them does not help. Richard's objection, which
you dismissed out of hand, was that your no-GC-tuning rule is silly in
the light of actual uses of garbage collected programming languages on
modern processors. It makes your results unrealistic, and an
unrealistic benchmark is misleading, or at best merely useless. You
are free to tersely reject our constructive criticism, but the only
meaningful consequence will be that OCaml users consider the shootout
untrustworthy and completely ignore its results... what good are the
"language comparisons" your project makes if the communities behind
those languages don't support your benchmarking methods?
